With its formal facade, grand entry, and plan built around a central interior courtyard, the residence today affords the aesthetics, style, comfort and luxury only found in Southern California’s great Mediterranean Revival Estates. Includes: 5 bedrooms, 7 baths, beamed living room, formal dining room, library, semi-attached 3 car garage, pool, grassy play yard, and orchard area.
